This effect was manifested not only in the Alsatian architecture and culture, but also in wines. Key wine regions are located on the lower slopes of the Vosges mountain range that defines an important role in the formation of the terroir. The mountain chain, stretching parallel to the Rhine, protects the vines from the prevailing westerly winds, and provides a sufficient amount of precipitation in the continental climate. Glacial activity that created the mountains, is also significantly influenced by topography and soil in the region. There are a wide variety of soils, from the granite and volcanic rock types in the foothills and ending with limestone, marl and alluvial deposits at the bottom of the plains.
